    Question about period placement.

    Does the "." go before or -after- the quotation symbol:


    1.) He said, "I don't live there any more."

    2.) He said, "I don't live there any more".


    And are there any exceptions to the rule?

    The first one is correct.

    Re: Question about period placement.

    Yes, it goes close to the letter base and inside the raised punctuation.
